UCSC was one of 51 institutions nationwide that received National Leadership Grants from the IMLS this year totaling nearly $18 million.

"The IMLS is the primary source of federal support for the nation's 123,000 libraries and 17,500 museums, and has a stated mission to create strong libraries and museums that connect people to information and ideas."

So - in short out of the 140,500 eligible institutions for the $18M - the GD project got $615,000

I have to say that is a waste - I know my library sure could have used some of that money.

I don't buy any of the excuses. The band will benefit greatly from the govenments $$ - with $ out of my pocket.
